This ranch used to be a recording studio. People like Elton John, Chicago, and Billy Joel recorded there--to name a few. It's also a working cattle ranch with water fall on the property and an original ghost town. It's a beautiful place with a lot of history.
Take a drive out of town to the tiny town of Eldora and go for a hike to the ghost town of Hessie. Drive to Caribou and see the old mining ruins. Do some fishing at Barker Resevoir-you can't miss it, it's the huge body of water that dominates Nederland.
